I can't think of anything clever to say.

Seriously, why is it 60 dollars? Is there something about it that I don't know.

I mean, yeah, it's a Kataang family photo and Kataang is awesome but...60$? That must be either really high quality or just overpriced. If it's not a limited time offer maybe I can ask for it as a birthday present or something...

It's limited in quantity (in other words, don't delay purchasing it too long if you intend on getting it) and based on past art prints done in this process they describe (Giclee) the results are quite beautiful and look the same on a wall. I'd say, personally, $60 is easily a good price for the quality of the item.

So it is a limited time thing then? Crap.

Also, is is the print just paper or is it made with some special material?

Its just regular paper in a matte'd frame.

Saw two guys walking around with it at Comic-Con. Immediately NEEDED IT. But went to the Nick booth and saw the price and walk right away (after buying a Pabu plush!)

It's a great picture but it's not worth $60, sorry. I'd rather give $60 to 6 different independent artists and get 6 pictures instead of paying Nickelodeon 60 bucks for one...

Nickelodeon Universe now has new Korra merchandise for sale!

A Brand new Pabu Plushie!


And a Brand New Korra mug!
http://www.shopnicku.com/product_p/7356397.htm

The Pabu plush is much cuter than the one initially sold at Comic-Con in my opinion, i'm so upset I just bought mine from Comic Con this past year! I skipped out on it in 2013, but couldn't resist it in 2014! Now I NEED this one! Ahhhh!

Avatar_Mom, I'm sure you need this in your collection, I hope I helped you find it!

I am super excited places like Midtown will have the statue! I am calling around my locals  now to see who else will have it in... mwahaha. i am happy to see it on TFAW, but really disappointed that the shipping they use is USPS First Class... um... WHY? For a statue like this, I want shipping options

I bought this mug and I love it. It's actually pretty big compared to other coffee mugs I have. They have a Korra one too now.

Korranation just posted a Dark Horse statue of Korra.

Crossposting here, since it's by Dark Horse.

Dark Horse is apparently planning to release a statue of Aang. Prototype shown at NYCC.

Between this and the Korra statues, I have to ask - are "foot/feet on rock" and "one foot on elevated rock" some kind of default pose stencil that comes free with paper and pencil you intend to use to draw a statue concept?

Even if it is the same pose, why not ice, or metal, or wood, or even stone stairs?

Stairs might still be made of stone, but it's.... something different, at least. Could even have the character running up them.

Ice would be slippery, metal give the idea that you are stepping on technology, wood has splinters, and stairs make cardio bunnies drool while obese people start sweating.

Standing on the earth shows that you are still grounded to reality and looking out into the distance with a strong pose shows that you are a dreamer/thinking/leader/ready to confront challenges.

Point is that it shows up a lot and is clichéd. I can see the benefits but something else would be nice. Using the same thing over and over again makes them seem more... interchangeable? Stamped out?

I saw this in person. I'm not a fan of the expression; I think the ZWYER stuff does a much better job capturing the characters.

The final design of Dark Horse's Aang statue from their April 2016 solicitations is here.

Here's a link to the statue itself. The picture is quite large.

It is sculpted by Joe Menna and will be released on the 22nd of June for $79.99. It's 8 1/4” tall (equating to approximately 21cm) and is a limited edition.

Personally i'm not a fan of his eyes. At all. They don't look right and the face itself is quite feminine looking. (It looks like they've tried to render him in LOK's style but i don't think the look fits.) On the plus side the body sculpt is fine (if simple) and the colours are bright (as they should be, for Aang). Though it's not as expensive, I'd rather wait for ZWYER's ATLA sculpts, even if it will take years to get to them at the rate that they are going.
